Here is another delicious recipe, one with a special twist that Platypus Wine Tours offers during certain wine country tours and other special events.

Rosemary Apple Cider Chicken Skewers


  • 2 pounds Chicken, preferably breast meat
  • ½ Cup of Olive Oil
  • 2 TBS Rosemary, fresh
  • 1 Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Pinch of Clove


  • Slice chicken breast into long finger-sized strips.
  • Place olive oil, clove, and rosemary in a bowl and marinate the chicken for 20-30 minutes.
  • Drain and skewer chicken pieces, and lay them as flat as possible on a shallow tray.
  • Pour the apple cider over the chicken and let sit until you are ready to cook.


You can grill, pan-frying, or bake the chicken skewers.

If you are grilling, place the skewers in warm water before cooking. This step will prevent the chicken from burning on the grill. Grilling should take about 10 minutes.

If you are baking, preheat the oven to 375 degrees; bake for about 12 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper while cooking.

When ready, serve the Apple Cider Chicken Skewers by themselves or with your favorite salad.
